Getting the Most Out of a Blinds Consultation

Getting the most out of a blinds Consultation. Blinds are a versatile type of window treatment that works well in a variety of aesthetic and functional contexts. This also means that there can be an overwhelming amount of options for your project. That’s why it is necessary to find the right consultant to find the best solution for the specific circumstances of your project. A quality consultation will allow you to maximize the efficacy of your window treatment with ease.


The first step in ensuring a quality blinds consultation is finding the right consultant. While this may not appear to be difficult, it can be tricky to differentiate in quality between different consultants. However, by taking a look at a company’s portfolio and reviews, a client can glean vital information about the consulting company.


When looking at a portfolio, make sure that ample information is given. A good rule of thumb is that the more information given in a portfolio piece, the better the consultant. An excellent consultant is not shy with the details: client business name, aims of the project, and how the project’s goals were reached successfully are the things to look for. The more specific the details are, the better at communication a consulting company may be. Because you are specifically looking for blinds, make sure that blinds are prominent in their portfolio. For example, our A+ Blinds portfolio has video entries that walk a potential client through the process we undertook to ensure quality blinds.


Reviews are another essential component of finding a great blinds consultant to work with. A fantastic consultant will leave a digital trail of impressed customers that is easy to find thanks to Google reviews, Yelp, and other similar services. In the best-case scenario, there’s a review from a customer with a similar project that you can use to find how the consultant responded to a situation like yours!

Other Considerations

Lastly, you should make sure that the consulting company commonly utilizes the full range of what blinds have to offer. Some types of blinds you should be cognizant of are wood, faux wood, aluminum, vertical, and panel blinds. And types of blinds aren’t where the options end. A consultant should be well-versed in decorative options (including different pleat sizes, slat sizes, and decorative tapes), cordless blinds, and motorized blinds.


Pricing may not be directly listed on a consultant’s website. This is not necessarily veiling exorbitant prices! In fact, many consultants don’t list pricing because pricing is so variable depending on client needs and it would be more confusing to the client than helpful. That’s why a consultant worth their salt offers a free consultation. Of course, clients don’t have time to get free consultations from every consultant, so make sure to find reliable consultants before initiating a consultation. 


Once you find the right consultant, the process should be easy. They will guide you through every step and answer any of the questions you may have about the process, your project, or blinds.
